    I left the UK many years ago, and have deliberately cut many ties such as an available house to live in (ie not rented out), etc etc, but have always maintained UK bank accounts, a UK mobile phone no. for work, a UK address for post (which has helped enormously for visas when a police clearance certificate is required), etc. You maintain what you need but cut ties with the rest.

    I've been non-resident in the UK for tax for many years. Three years ago we visited the UK and my wife (a tourist on an Aussie passport) developed a problem. She received free emergency treatment from the NHS, but we had to pay for necessary surgery afterwards. There's a fine line between emergency treatment and subsequent necessary treatment. We were covered by insurance so no worries.

    My understanding from our dealings with the NHS from then, is that even if you have been away from the UK for years, you can go back and receive free NHS treatment so long as you can convince them that your intention is to stay and resettle in the UK from then on. I have no idea what that actually means, or how it's applied, in practice.

    I suppose it would go like this.

    You tell them you are going to resettle permanently and you get your major medical issue sorted.

    If you leave the freezing cold shit house again you go on record and you are done for any further treatment.

    Only way they could work it.

    Anyway, so let's say you are here in Lieland with a bint, brat, house car and all the shit but no health insurance.

    Ya get cancer like our Pattaya friend and you need to make a decision on whether you will go Back to Pomgolia to save your life and tell them you are back permanently. ???

    What ya gunna do Pom fukers ?.

    You don't go back because ya hate the stinky fukin place.

    Every Pom on this forum is living in Thailand simply because Pomland is basically fuked from the rampant Immigration you fukin idiots allowed and let's not talk about the Crime, shit weather, unhappy people and diseases spread by coonts like you with ya bad hygiene and fooked teeth.

    I go back to Arsetralia to do my mighty road trips, see my mates and generally enjoy our loverly Spring and Autumn weather.

    Another reason is i'm cashed up and can afford to bounce around the joint. Have I told ya that before .

    Anyway mate, it's time for you to start Teflng for the day and pulling in the big buks.

    You have a great day eh.

    But anyway,

    enuff of the happy posts and let's get back to business.

    Dills idea of flouncing back to Bad Teeth Land and getting treated under the excuse that ya gunna cum back forever has got one massive hole innit.

    It would be fair to say that if one has nothing to go back to then how ya gunna work that ?

    Are ya gunna ring up the garbage disposal guy and ask him if ya can bunk in his truck for 12 months ?

    This topic is very uplifting.

    I can't wait to get over to Thailand permanently then get cancer or something.

    They can just put me out in the jungle to die like that guy in the movie The Beach that got bit by a shark.

    Then throw my body in the river.

    No sense blowing all my fun money on health cover only to get screwed by the company.

    That's unfair, many came for the many temples to visit with one's new squeeze, some to sit in a bar in the ghettos to forget, some to scam the locals and take advantage of third world employment practises.

    But mostly to enjoy the packed tourist beaches with their wall to wall "restaurants" and bars, polluted waters, noisy teen authorised boats.

    Thanks be to Allah they never step away from the available tours to see the real Thailand.

    I do have a massive larf when fukers assume that they will be fuked over by their Insurance company.

    That may happen if one is a dumb fuker and chooses the cheapest company on the block or is a fukin idiot and under issuers.

    Anyway dumb fuks, go get the cheapest Insurance or better still get none.

    He (Kev in Thailand) is in England and his cancer has come back with a vengeance. It's terminal. I don't know the guy and have a healthy disdain for these *Vloggers* who've been in Thailand for 10 minutes giving out advice like they've been here forever, but you have to have sympathy for anyone facing what he is.

    Yer, for sure ,

    Can happen to anyone hence it is nice to know ya have Insurance.

    If he never had the cash to pay the Hospital bill suppose he would of just died earlier. ???

    Ya just don't run back to Blight and get treated, ya need a lot of support while getting treated.

    Yeah I guess so. My insurance is worldwide (excluding Japan and Nth America) so in the same situation I'd be seeking out the best Oncologists insurance money could buy. And if it was terminal or I didn't want to proceed with treatment for whatever reasons, at least the end would come under quality Palliative care which Thailand is not noted for having.

    i wouldnt wish what kevin has on anybody, oesophageal cancer has a very high mortality rate, and his case just proves that as a foreigner who has burnt all their bridges to the homeland and without a comprehensive health insurance policy or a massive fund stashed away in the bank the unexpected diagnosis of something like cancer, often with years of expensive ongoing treatment necessary with no guarantee of success is another hard blow on top of the original diagnosis.

    emotion, sympathy, support and compassion are just four of the many things totally lacking from the thai medical system. if you dont have the money, all you will get is an aspirin and told to go home.

    i suspect that had kevin gone back to the uk at the first diagnosis, his life expectancy would be longer than it is now, but his planning was hampered by his stubborn, ridiculous and ignorant "england is a shithole, its full of tories and coons, beer costs a fiver a pint and whats more its cold" attitude.

    had he returned he would have been treated professionally and expertly with compassion, respect and dignity, and given all the support he needed, he need not have begged for funds on go fund me and it wouldnt have cost him a penny.

    but no, he chose to remain in pattaya, home of the 400 baht blow job and the 150 baht roast dinner.

    go figure.

    I don't think thats quite right Tax except for the part where you said Engerland is a shit hole and full of coons and is cold.

    Anyway, even though Kev did not have Insurance he had the money so that enabled him to start treatment straight away in Pattaya Bangkok Hospital.

    After his initial chemo treatment and when the tumor had shrunk the Doctors decided to Operate. All his updates on his progress he was praising the Doctors and the Hospital.

    This was over 12 months in the making. His last report was that the cancer had returned and he was of to Spain to sort his shit out and then returning to Pomland with some family members.

    Reading between the lines seems to be he is fooked.

    His Septic mate who was giving updates on his Utube channel reported that at the end of his treatment some shit went down with the Doctors and Kev was not very happy about it.

    No explanation was given about what happen so no fuker knows except Kev and the Seppo fuk.

    One thing is for sure though, Kev layed out 2 million Thai Baht to the Hospital for his treatment over the 12 month period and right there is why it is good crack to carry Health Insurance in this shit house.

    Regards the catch cry of " Run Back To Pomgolia " it's not that fuking easy.

    OK, if ya have people who will support you but many fukers dont have that, they have fuked off out of the joint and have fuk all back there.

    That's the reality of shit innit.
